C&LG committee summary report on ASC

24 April 2017

The Community and Local Government (C&LG) Committee Report on Adult Social Care recently released goes a long way to identifying many of the funding and financial viability issues giving rise to increasing unmet needs and consequential deterioration in the quality of care and support being provided. 

It also makes a wide range of important recommendations. This is very much to be welcomed, complementing C&LG’s earlier pre Budget report. However, because all previous estimates of adult social care underfunding substantially understate the current funding shortfall, both C&LG’s reports cannot fully recognise the significance of the shortfall which will remain, even after the supplementary £2bn to be injected through the Budget. 

So they cannot fully highlight either the likelihood that the extra money will be insufficient to address the major challenges facing the sector successfully, in the short-term, or that the extra funding cannot be deployed sufficiently quickly to prevent many more care homes and other care services from going out of business shortly.
